When action is strategically informed by a mindful, intentional focus, you and your organization are better able to cut through the noise and clutter to enjoy peak performance. Mindful Performance (MP) makes it possible to find calm in chaos. When leadership and employees feel their best, they also perform at their best. This directly impacts the bottom line of the organization. We call this the “return on mindfulness” (ROM).
“Angela and Dennis are able to articulate the neuroscience behind mindfulness and provide practical ideas for stress reduction and achieving more work-life balance. Our faculty and staff have also reported that they now have tools to better handle change and transition in the workplace. The first three-month program was so successful, we invited them to return for two more programs!”
